Exegesis Journal, Royal Holloway, University of London

Exegesis, the academic e-journal of the English Department at Royal Holloway, University of London (www.exegesisjournal.org), is now accepting submissions for the Spring 2013 edition on 'Testimonies and Confessions'. In this issue we seek to generate discussion about the forms that testimonies and confessions have taken historically, theologically, and literarily from an interdisciplinary, cross-period perspective. Authors may choose to investigate this topic literally, metaphorically, or theoretically, and in terms of specific texts, authors, times, or places. Articles and creative pieces might address, but are not limited to, any of the following subjects:

[UPDATE] Critical Innovations: Reading & Writing Experimental Texts--Edited Collection

Kristina Quynn (CSU) & Robin Silbergleid (MSU)

We seek essays for an edited collection on the topic of innovative criticism. Building on the work of the autobiographical or creative modes popularized in the late 1980s and early 1990s, this collection assembles essays that explore the alternative methods, approaches, and practices that experimental, innovative, alternative, minor, and/or avant-garde texts call for or require. This collection acknowledges that the act of literary or cultural criticism is not neutral or distanced but is a personal and politicized practice that performs critical authority and expertise according to understood and agreed upon critical conventions.

The officers of the Idaho State University English Graduate Student Association invite you to join us for the 8th annual Inter-mountain Graduate Conference at Idaho State University, March 1-2, 2013.

We swell with knowledge and experience as we move through the steps from undergraduates to scholars in the field. The discipline grows with us as we contribute our own research. As graduate students we are uniquely involved in the growth of the discipline as we grow ourselves. How are we as graduate students contributing to the growth of the discipline? How has your research contributed to the growth of a specific focus? What new and exciting focus is on the horizon?

Comedy is under-explored in Victorian literary criticism, but it is pervasive in the texts of the era, from brief moments—Dickens' caricatures and Thackeray's asides—to more extended treatments, in Lear's nonsense verse and Jerome K. Jerome's widely popular Three Men in a Boat.
